**weird topic alert**

Im trying to make a list of fascinating numerical sequences as part of a display in a classroom. I like sequences such as Fibonacci and Triangular sequences but any different ones that people like on here?

Ask <https://www.youtube.com/user/numberphile>. They've featured quite a few of them.*Originally posted by Silverstriker***[b]weird topic alert**

Nice site! Did I detect a tiny but noticeable thread of implied sarcasm here?*Originally posted by rookie54***omg!!!**

One thing I wondered about. If Pathags are infinite but a smaller number of the full set of real numbers, doesn't that make the infinity of real numbers bigger than the infinity of Pathags?- Joined

You go wonky if you try to think about different infinities as being bigger or smaller than other ones. Think of infinities as having characteristics, not 'sizes'; denumerability is an example of a characteristic.*Originally posted by sonhouse***One thing I wondered about. If Pathags are infinite but a smaller number of the full set of real numbers, doesn't that make the infinity of real numbers bigger than the infinity of Pathags?**

For example, the set of natural numbers (1,2,3,4) can be put into 1:1 correspondence with the set of even numbers (2,4,6,8), which means they are equivalently denumerable -- this is counterintuitive, because one thinks the set of even numbers must be smaller, since all the odd numbers are missing.- Joined

If by "Pathags" you mean Pythagorean triple numbers... those aren't real numbers in the first place. They're integers. Reveal Hidden Content*Originally posted by sonhouse***Nice site! Did I detect a tiny but noticeable thread of implied sarcasm here?**

normally, sarcasm is my goto post...*Originally posted by sonhouse***Nice site! Did I detect a tiny but noticeable thread of implied sarcasm here?**

in this case, i really learned a new thing in my life,

and,

while i cannot yet find a use for it (even in my shop) this is a wonderful bit of knowledge for me...
